Yes, this lady I've had a relationship with ... has dumped me.
Every day, I would get home from work, and I'd hear her voice.
Oh, she wasn't at the house. We didn't live together. But every day, she always left me a message on the phone. And she told me how important it was to call me. I meant something to her.
But now it's over.
She's dumped me.
I knew this day would come. In my heart, I knew it wouldn't last. Oh, I could have tried to fool myself that we had more ... but we didn't. And I knew it.
Wednesday, there was no doubt it was over. And yes, I saw it coming.
When I got in from work Wednesday afternoon, I went straight to the answering machine. The call counter was at "0" ... and she hadn't called.
And I knew she wouldn't call again.
But ... you know, there's a chance she will call again. I just need to wait.
In fact, I know she'll call again. Not this month. Not next month. Not even next year.
But, I think after enough time has passed, she'll call.
Yes, I expect that one afternoon in 2008, there'll be her voice on my answering machine:
Hello, this is Peggy Martin. And I'm calling to ask for your vote...
I can hardly wait.
